DANNY SLEATH helped Boston United register their best run of form for 23 years – and then declared: "It's not enough."

Sleath was on the scoresheet as the Pilgrims powered into the final of final of the UniBond Challenge with a 2-0 win at Curzon Ashton on Saturday.

The victory booked a rematch with bitter rivals Retford United, who beat Kendal in the other semi-final.

It was also United's seventh victory in a row in all competitions, their best run of results since 1987.

But with the Pilgrims chasing a UniBond League and Cup double, Sleath wants another string of victories.

"It's a good run, but if you want to win silverware and win the league, you've got to do that," admitted the former Mansfield midfielder.

"Seven wins sounds good, but we want to be pushing on for more than that.

"We can't get ahead of ourselves because there's a long way to go. If we want to get promoted, it has to continue.

"We're still second in the league and in the final of the (UniBond Challenge) cup. We haven't won either yet."

The Pilgrims are embarking on a similar run which propelled managers Rob Scott and Paul Hurst's former club, Ilkeston, into the UniBond Premier Division play-offs last year.

"They're similarities with last season," declared Sleath, who played under Hurst and Scott at Ilkeston.

"When you're winning games you get a passion inside you. You want to win all the time.

"The more you win the more you want to win – it's a brilliant feeling."
